§ 64. Mr. Willis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent increases in the salaries of the judiciary fall within the terms of the incomes policy of Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Maudling
Recent salary increases for the lower judiciary have corresponded to the increases from 1st August, 1963 in higher Civil Service salaries. These increases, recommended by the Standing Advisory Committee under Lord Franks, ranged from 18 per cent, to 15 per cent., giving an annual average of about 3½ per cent. This is not inconsistent with the Government's incomes policy.
